Microsoft is parent company of Github. Chris Wanstrath, P. J. Hyett and Tom Preston Werner are founder of Github. It is founded in February 8, 2008 and Launched in April 10, 2008. Thomas Dohmke, Mike Taylor and Erica Brescia are respectively CEO, CFO and COO at Github.

Github Deployment

First, You have to login your hosting provider. In case, I have hostinger which is low budget and best performance with unlimitted bandwith, multi subdomain access free and also free SSL for website. So, I do the deployment steps with hostinger.

Now, You have to switch Git dashboard in hostinger. Go to the Advance section and tap the Git option in Hostinger.

There are several steps to complete your github deployment.

1. Add SSH Key in Github

If you are a new user, you see the generate SSH key option instead of the remove SSH key option in the Private Git Repository section. Just tap it. After appear SSH key front of you. Copy this SSH key and go to your GitHub public repository in your GitHub account.
